Collegium Civitas is a modern, private university located in the heart of Warsaw, one of Central and Eastern Europe’s most dynamic capital cities. The university is accredited by the Polish Government and has built up a great reputation in the EU for its academic offerings, particularly those offered in English to international students that now hail from across the globe.
Collegium Civitas focuses on security studies, new media, Jewish studies, European Union enlargement, transition to a market economy and democracy, globalization, strategic analysis, intercultural communication and political leadership. No future social scientist, analyst, policy-maker or business person is sufficiently equipped without an intimate knowledge of the logic and history of these processes and issues.
Location Collegium Civitas is located in the Palace of Culture and Science, a prime location in the strict city center near many of Warsaw’s attractions, public transport hubs, cultural institutions, and many cafes.
Student Life Collegium Civitas prides itself on being a multinational, multicultural community that encourages active participation from each student. As an international student you will have opportunity to join International Students Club (ISC) and Erasmus Student Network (ESN) activities to assist you in building a friendly, supportive social network. ISC organizes social and cultural events, sport and other hands-on activities, and helps CC students adjust to life abroad. ESN is a non-profit international student organization with a mission to represent international students, provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of “Students Helping Students.”
Accommodation Details Multiple accommodation options are available to suit your lifestyle, personal requirements, and financial situation. The International Students Club (ISC) members and the Erasmus Student Network (ESN CC) are happy to assist you in finding suitable lodging.
Collegium Civitas HOUSE, a university dormitory, was recently opened near the scenic Vistula River about a 40 minute commute from classes. The dorms offer fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms, and sleeping rooms as well as Wi-Fi, car parking, and bicycle storage as well as an excellent location, nearby recreational areas, and grocery stores.
You can also rent a room in a “student flat” (a flat rented by several students together). Conditions here will vary – you may be in a single room or share a room with one or more roommates.
Renting a private apartment is also possible, offering the most privacy and comfort. However, this will also be the most expensive and complicated accommodation option. Before making the final decision, you should always see your future flat. Do not rent a flat without checking it first.
Low Cost of Living Warsaw is still a remarkably inexpensive city in which to live. A taxi ride from the airport to the center is about $9. A room in a good hotel can be had for about $75. A studio apartment can be rented for $500 per month. An average lunch in a restaurant costs $7-9. A movie ticket is priced at $6-7. A beer in a pub will cost a little over $2.
